>Passionate Intensities: The Construction of Postmodern Fundamentalisms
> Nassau Community College is renewing its Annual Multidisciplinary
>Conference with a timely, albeit distressing, topic of global concern. NCC
>is soliciting proposals for twenty-minute presentations for its one-day
>conference on Friday, November 4, 2005.
> Many of us had envisioned a postmodern world in which diverse
>communities and beliefs coexisted in peace. Instead, we are faced with a
>post 9/11 world in which political, cultural, ethnic, and religious
>beliefs have developed into fundamentalist constructions at war with each
>other--and all to often the war is real and bloody.
> We invite you to take diverse, multidisciplinary approached to the topic.
>"Passionate intensities" suggests that there is little middle ground and few
>compromises between parties. The players may be cultural, such as Christian
>and Muslim, but you may find yourself thinking of other antagonisms:
>scientific research versus global expansion, postmodern artists versus
>coservative endowments, civil rights versus security limitations, personal
>rights versus the wishes of the community.
> Send copies of your papers by *August 26, 2005* to:

>Dept. of English
